A social experiment conducted in Israel recently showed Israelis unanimously helping a man who was posing as blind and appearing to have mistaken a large shekel bill for a small one.

A video of the experiment, posted on Facebook by pro-Israel group StandWithUs, shows the man posing as a blind student asking strangers to break a 20-shekel bill, which was actually a 100 shekel note. In the footage, every single person he stopped on the street — including some who approached to ask if he needed help — pointed out that the bill he was holding was, in fact, a 100 shekel bill. One man even gave him an additional 20 shekels.

Other passersby behaved in exactly the same way when the same experiment was conducted with a 200-shekel bill.

StandWithUs said the concept for the test was borrowed from an American TV show, in which an actor pretended to be blind and asked strangers to break a $5 bill, which was actually $100. Unlike in Israel, many Americans took advantage of the situation.
